Read what parents are saying about Hillsborough High School
Monumental disappointment. I guess the academics are okay, rigorous and all but that's it. If you've got a smart kid who wants to really get the most out of high school - explore your options. HHSIB is NOT it. Guidance is a joke... a passive newsletter 'posted' once a month. Scheduling? That's done for you so no real electives. Athletics - pathetic. Can.not.wait for this school year to be over. One and done. Not dropping out of IB, transfering to a more balanced program and happily paying the tuition. This is DEFINITELY not like a 'private school education' as some claim.

The worst experience ever. Couldn't tell you if it is just our children's culture today or the school staff and administration but If you think you are preparing your child for college by enrolling him into the IB program at this school you have another thing coming. Unless you want your child to teach themselves and be bullied by insensitive horrible classmates that obviously are not being raised correctly then this is the school for you. If not save yourself the nightmare and enroll your child in virtual school.

Use of electronics and phone and messages should be banned in the school. Administration specially the principal and VP are wonderful ...

Super school with a wonderful history. Band program is really really good...don't pass the band by. Thank god the school board rehabbed the building & didn't tyear it down like they initially wanted to do. Not a wealthy school like the other high schools (HBP) in Tampa but worth a good solid rating

im a 10th grader at hhs n the school is a good school but its true the principal really only care about the ib students like there is a separation between the traditional and ib students. But its really up to the student to how they view the school. For example before i started I asked people how was hhs and they all told mi different things and for mi non of it was true (that was for mi anyways) so its actually how the student takes it in.
